|Tools for this tag|
- animal_keeping=*<animal>, where <animal> means the name of the animal (english singular form). If more than one species is kept, provide a semi-colon-separated list, e.g. animal_keeping=sheep;cow .
|An open stable for horses.
Note for native speakers: In the UK the term open stable is rather unknown, because for some legal reasons those are non-existing there. Somehow similar is a field shelter - also sometimes called free barn. Contrary to an open stable the facilities within the area (like e.g. feeding stations, watering places, ...) have to be moveable. Consider using landuse=farmyard instead
|A paddock for horses. Also valid for the open-air area of a paddock box. Consider using landuse=farmyard instead. For the closed area of a paddock box see building=stable.
Note: For pasture use landuse=meadow and preferable meadow=pasture.
There are two similar tags that are more common:
- landuse=meadow is commonly used for areas of meadow and pasture for livestock grazing
- landuse=farmyard is commonly used for areas with farm buildings, including stables and barns, and is sometimes used for cattle yards, paddocks, and livestock pens.
The proposal for this tag was not further maintained, but the tag has gained significant use.
